Official royal guest list released

2011-04-23 12:32

The full list of confirmed guests attending the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton was released by Britain’s monarchy today.

Soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria were among the most recognisable names on the list of guests at the April 29 nuptials.

Many on the list had been already confirmed in the media weeks ago, including the Beckhams, musician Elton John and director Guy Ritchie. But others, like singer Joss Stone and Mr Bean actor Rowan Atkinson – a close friend of William’s father Prince Charles – were new.

Royal family members from countries including Bahrain, Denmark, Spain and Morocco will also attend. Other guests include government officials, Afghan war veterans, and charity workers.

The palace said it only invited crowned heads of states, and that foreign political leaders – such as President Barack Obama or French President Nicolas Sarkozy – weren’t sent invitations.
